Reading about Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan got me interested in celestial navigation. I am very intrigued by celestial navi; unfortunately, I am a very poor when it comes to math. All I know about trigonometry is that my older, much smarter sister hated trig because it was so-o-o-o difficult for her. I understand there are computer programs that do most of the math for you, as well as the other ‘scut’ work? I saw the classified add on your site, advertising a bubble sextant… can these be used at sea; or, on land? Can some marine type sextants be used when the horizon in not visible [a pan of mercury?]
Thanks & Have a Nice Day,
